Penguin Random House Audio. (Aunties, Bk. 2). Mar. 2022. 10:19 hrs. ISBN 9780593553756. $20. M
Everyone’s favorite aunties are back in this hilarious sequel to Dial A for Aunties. Meddy Chan is a pro when it comes to weddings and has helped run her fair share of them with her aunties. When it’s finally her turn to tie the knot to her college sweetheart, she wants everything to be perfect. That means having her Ma and aunts attend as guests instead of catering the event. Meddy’s aunts find a nice Chinese Indonesian, family-run wedding company to help plan her perfect day. But, in this case, “family-run” means Mafia. It will be up to Meddy and her aunties to stop the wedding from turning into a crime scene. Narrator Risa Mei excels at bringing the aunties alive with a myriad of accents. This is a romantic cozy mystery, light on bloodshed and heavy on hilarity.
VERDICT Listeners will need to suspend their disbelief at times, but it’s worth it for the laughs. Will leave them eagerly awaiting Sutanto’s third “Aunties” installment.
